2021-2022 Weekly Lesson Plans: ‘Remote’ Schooling During a Crisis (Updated)

How we will use these lesson plans:

This year is a little different for us as Baby Shyanne is undergoing chemotherapy for AML and Momma is away at the hospital with her which makes our schooling a bit complicated but we will find a way. These are the lessons that we have come up with to make life easier for everyone who is helping out at home. I plan to print out copies of worksheets and such for each child’s binders when I am home but in the event that I am not able to anyone can see what needs to be completed for the week.

(Its hard to believe that the featured photo was taken just a couple of weeks before we got her AML diagnosis… how fast life can change!)

I basically took the books and activities that we wanted to include for this next year and then figured out approximately how many lessons were in each one. We plan to school for the 3-4 weeks while we are inpatient and then take a week or so off when Shyanne and Mommy are home. I know that we will be schooling for 36-40 weeks this time around so I just tried to divide them up as equally as possible… Will we finish them all? Probably not but we’ll have fun trying.

I will continue to update this as more books and activities come in or if we make any changes to the plans. (We may switch out our math curriculum when I get a better idea of how well everyone can work independently.) We hope you can find ideas to use in your own homeschooling experience. We happened to have a lot of these resources already available as I have WAY TOO MUCH homeschooling stuff… please don’t tell my husband I said that ya’ll! You can also find lots of FREE resources HERE and under the Homeschool Tab.

This is what our dining table has looked like for the past couple of days… Mr. Jacob is testing out a new game I installed on the computer and Miss Isabella was helping to get some lessons ready.

I don’t know where that electric hole puncher has been all my life but it has been a lifesaver! Our printer/copier has been getting quite the workout as well but we love how easy it is on ink! We’ve had it for a few years now and only filled the ink twice so far!!! (That’s less than $40.00 in ink!!!)
